“The Republican convention in Jacksonville next month could be moved to an outdoor stadium as cases of the novel coronavirus in the state increase,” the Washington Post reports.
“While no decision has been made, Republican officials are studying two outdoor professional sports stadiums near the VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena where the convention is currently slated to be held. They are also looking more broadly into the logistics of pulling off an outdoor convention.”
“An outdoor convention could pose its own set of problems, however. Florida is particularly hot in the summer, with temperatures often climbing to 100 degrees, and rain is also a threat.”Save to Favorites
